Project Summary

The aim of this project is to provide firefighters with critical information for vehicle extrication that currently is not easily accessible nor comprehensive. Through augmented reality and a simple-to-use interface, our mobile app will provide firefighters with immediate extrication information provided by cutting-edge technology. Our approach is creating a product that is commercially available and will challenge existing firefighter technology standards. AR Extrication Assist has addressed all of the problems proposed by Challenge 003’s: “create an innovative AR mobile application that can provide vehicle extrication in an intuitive, fast, and effective way to enable the extrication process."
